Three Totally Indie Kits!

Note: This product requires EZdrummer version 1.3 and up, EZdrummer 2, or Superior Drummer 2.3 or above.

With Toontrack's Indie Folk EZX expansion in your EZdrummer or Superior Drummer rig, you'll be able to instantly conjure up the sound of three fun, inspiring, and character-filled vintage acoustic drum kits. Hand-selected by the experts at Toontrack and recorded at the Avast! Recording Co. in Seattle (Fleet Foxes, The Shins, and Band Of Horses), the overall sound of the Indie Folk EZX could best be described as organically warm. It's perfect for any project you want give that natural vibe to. What's more, the Indie Folk EZX comes loaded with a complete collection of MIDI performances by Stephen Belans, the same amazing player who gave the Americana EZX its incredible rhythm library.

Upgrade your EZdrummer collection with three amazing indie style kits

Take a closer look at kits included in Toontrack's Indie Folk EZX, and you can't help but be impressed by the range of organic tone and style they packed into this expansion. First off, there's a tried-and-true '61 Gretsch Round Badge kit outfitted with mostly Remo Ambassador heads and gently dampened. They recorded that one with both sticks and mallets to give the Indie Folk EZX even more flexibility. On the other end of the spectrum, there's a 1940s Slingerland Rolling Bomber kit whose calfskin heads deliver smooth and natural transients with a meaty fundamental. The bass drum on that kit is nothing short of magical! Lastly, there's a 1950s Ludwig kit, which delivers extremely tight drums on top of a more-sustained kick for a remarkably cohesive sound. Top it off with a killer selection of cymbals (mostly Zildjian A series) and some fun extras, and there's no doubt that the Toontrack Indie Folk EZX is one of those gems that will add a ton to your EZdrummer rig.

Indie Folk EZX

So good! Great value!
5/5

Great, musically useful, sounds

This is a great-sounding expansion pack. The kits have a unique, vibey, sound that can fit into a variety of musical styles. The inclusion of the 4-mic sample set is a cool addition.

A hit

Like the other reviewer, I too own a very healthy amount of drum libraries, my favorite of the self-contained bunch being BFD2 and its El Dorado expansion, but with that comes a hefty price on system resources and hard drive space. So I often find myself calling up my EZXs to fill in temporarily. Indie Folk PERFECTLY satiates all my needs for classic rock and soul derived drum sounds without all the labor on my poor Macbook Air, bless its heart its trucking along pretty well actually. Indie Folk is highly versatile. If you understand drum recording techniques of the last 60 years, you'll be able to nail just about any sound imaginable in this one EZX...from mono room-only mic sounds of the 50s to mid 60s, to 4-mic Glyn Johns type sounds of the late 60s/early 70s, to tight disco-like sounds. It'll even do classic metal (I was able to get a Ride The Lightning era Lars Ulrich thing going without much fuss at all). Im finding this particular Toontrack product to be quite limitless and I've quite settled on it being the drum VI of choice for my EP that I'm finishing up. Hands down, best EZX. Vintage Rock would tie if it weren't for that ugly room sound it has. Yeesh.

My new favorite kit

I'm not trying to brag but I have a lot of drum libraries. I mainly have been using Toontrack (Music City & Roots), Slate's SSD4.0/Trigger with the Platinum Samples and Chris Lord Alge (heavenly cymbals), and every once in a while the NI Kontact kits hit the spot (Abbey Road 70's is great). Those are just the ones I use. I own a hell of a lot more that I never use. But I wont name names because its all preference in the end. So when I first heard this kit I was intrigued enough to add it to the collection. Well I'm blown away. This is right in my wheel house. Its not your every day kit, but when you need something big, warm, dry and need to be able to fool your audience on realism... well this one takes the cake. Its a shame they did it as an EZX in my opinion. I would love to see a larger library with a few more options. The hats at first I didn't like but I've figured out how to tame them. Would be nice to have a 2nd or 3rd option but again its an EZX, not an SDX. And this has since become my go to for snares. The Gretsch Roundbadge and 1950s Ludwig are just perfect. Fat, dry, snappy, no bad resonances at all. And its one of the best libraries I've heard for doing authentic sounding rolls and ghost notes. The toms are great, you can bring them up in a mix without them over powering everything else. First time I've been able to do that from a library without even tweaking them. Bottom line is this kits is cheaper than most on the market. And while it is some what of a niche kit, to tell you the truth every kit is a niche kit. There is no one kit that works on every song in every genre. But this is one of the most masterfully recorded kits I've heard from Toontrack for a long time. Worth every penny, do not think twice about it. And to Toontrack: Next time do an SDX!!! It sounds far too good to be an EZX.

Definitely Worth the Investment

This is a solid investment for anyone who writes indie folk songs or collaborates with someone who does. I am currently drumming for a folk project which has a definite Fleet Foxes influence and they love the sound of these drums. Actually, this software could probably work in all kinds of styles; I am also involved with a post rock unit (sounds a bit like Russian Circles) and some of the drums in this software (the Gretsch and Slingerland Bomber in particular) also sound really good in that setting. The ONLY thing that keeps me from giving this software 5 stars is the complete absence of folk percussion sounds (washboard, spoons, etc). Overall, another satisfying purchase from Sweetwater and great customer service yet again from my sales rep AJ Becerra.
